  • The graphic is amazing and processor of the phone is fast
  • It has fast ram that makes it efficient to run many apps at the same time. It also has enough memory to download several apps.

What customers say about "Features"
Apple iPhone 8 4.7", 64 GB, Fully Unlocked, Space Gray
  • Louder stereo speakers: This might not be significant to everybody, however, it is worthy to me. I stay alone most of the time and this feature helps me not craving for the headphones when at home.
  • I really like the fingerprint scanner
  • Water resistance is great and came in handy the week I purchased it, thanks to a rain storm while playing outdoor sports and my phone was left in my belongings.
  • No back button and menu area on the touchscreen like the android
  • Love it ! Just wish it still head the headphone port.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Great phone. Love the iris scanner. Not impressed by location of the finger print scanner and the curve of the phones edges.
  • Excellent smartphone, with ip68 protocol for water issues
  • Great Phone, Samsung has a lot of great features especially their Samsung pay feature.
  • I love the personal assistant "Bixby", the camera is fantastic, and the Samsung health feature lets me record my vitals and keep track of eating and sleeping habits.
  • I dont like how the speaker sounds. It´s a poor mono speaker.
  • It's a great phone, but wish Samsung would allow this phone to have the dual SIM card feature for their US version.

What customers say about "Power"
Apple iPhone 8 4.7", 64 GB, Fully Unlocked, Space Gray
  • The standby time for the battery feels like forever
  • Battery can easily last a few days. Great improvement from my older phone that I was charging multiple times a day.
  • Battery life is better than my 6 plus and is faster.
  • This phone is good but the battery doesn’t last as long as previous iPhones
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • This is my first Samsung phone. I love it. The display is crystal clear. One full charge of battery lasted for > 24hrs.
  • I particularly like the long battery life and the cordless charger.
  • The other things are perfect but my only issue is regarding to the battery performance and it's not as I saw from the reviews and some YouTubes
  • The only weakness I can find from S8 is the battery life. It cannot last for one whole day without charging. But the functionality is really much more powerful compared with iphone.
